Room service

I wanted to order room service one evening. It took four phone calls to room service before someone answered the phone who could actually take my order. When the food finally came, they charged me $2 more than the price listed in the room. The chicken was EXTREMELY dry and flavorless. In short, don't order room service at this hotel!

A fantastic stay

When we arrived at the hotel we were quickly checked in, the front desk girl was very friendly and efficient. The room was very clean and comfortable. Our room had a sliding door and a small balcony with a decent view of the pool. The water in the pool was a little chilly but over all very nice. My only complaint would be that they were out of regular coffee for our room the fist day, but did bring us some in the morning. Also there was a panhandler hanging around the parking lot in the morning but he was quickly chased off.

Dining tip: In Hotel

Reds Diner in the hotel is a little expensive. 30 dollars for breakfast for two is a little too much. I would recommend eating some where else

Good quality stay, but needs better front desk service.

The overall experience was great. Clean, comfortable. The only thing I would change is when we were checking in, we were being helped by the lady at the desk until a ton of people from one of the airlines came in and went straight to the front of the line. Our lady started working with them and handing them things and completely ignored us right in the middle of everything. It was a little rude.

Birthday

We stayed here for a fun birthday getaway. Ut does not look like much from the outside but we were pleasantly surprised it was relaxing and a great room. However, we were very disappointed that the pool was closed during our entire stay. We had kids with us and they were very sad. Also, it was very inconvenient that there was a lot of construction in the parking lot making it difficult to park.
